Any show where the bouncer is thinner and more fashionable than I am sets me on edge, but I tried not to let that affect my opinion of Odyn Vovk’s Fall 2010 Collection. I’m fairly certain I failed. Odyn Vovk translates to “One Wolf” in Celtic, and I’m glad for the designer that he doesn’t have to go around spelling that name for dinner reservations.
Not that his name is any picnic: Austin Sherbanenko. According to his website, he chose the name because Wolf “represents learning, loyalty, intuition, and the shadow. He teaches people not to feel strength and power of self when alone and to learn about the deeper inner self by imparting spiritual assistance and courage.” Not to feel strength and power of self when alone? I assume that’s a typo because I don’t know about anyone else, but I rather like feeling those things. Typos make me cranky, yet another thing I tried to set aside as I watched the show.
